Bigger tires

I have the stock tires on my 2014 gt/cs. 19" wheels. Having a traction problem like most people are having. Wanting drag radials but I would need to change the front wheels too. I am just weird like that. They gotta match. How big of a tire can I fit on my car without having to do any other modifications. Sorry for the long description. If you have any other ideas please let me know.

Are you looking for street or strip tires?

Biggest tire that will fit on the factory 19's is 275/40/19. Some brands of 285/35/19 will fit on our 9" wheels as well but it's not ideal.

Depends on the offset and width of the wheel. As far as the wheel well is considered I think the widest you could fit would be a 315 or 325.

The C/S wheels are 8.5" not 9" wide. So a 275 or a 285 will be really stretched.

Good call I missed that part. I was thinking he had the brembo wheels. In that case I wouldn't go more than a 255/40.
